I didnt really realize it until an o-ring and some pvc were in my hand and a little bit - o blood. Fortunately only the back end of the piston got messed up.
Now I gotta make a new piston :(

Nice job JSR! The gov is gonna come looking for you.

You should look into getting a .40 blowgun barrel. That way you can have ammo premade with better consistency as far as accuracy, weight, shape, etc. Also .40 blowgun barrels fit well in 1/2" sch80, just gob on a some JB-Weld and you're set.

These little monsters might do some nasty stuff against coins. They're for rabbit hunting. The cone is supposed to fit loosely, and as the dart penetrates, the cone comes off and the spike continues deeper.

I fit a 40 cal blwogun barrel in a 3/8" pipe nipple.
Its a tight fit so I had to do some sanding and dremeling.
But it makes a nice clean piece.

Please be careful. I've had some come flying back after hitting some tough backstops. Remember, they're not lead. They won't bend and curl upon impact. That point will still be intact if/when it comes back at you.

I should try this; I'm sure I can put a nail or needle through quite a bit of stuff with a 6x mixture and a 20 foot barrel.

Wah, I don't have anything to try this with atm... The most I have is a cloud bbmg, and that will get me nowhere lol... The rest of my stuff is well, nonexistent. But, I'm going to make something soon, after I get some extra cashflow.

Clucking bell, those would make for the ideal pneumatic sniper - consistent pre-made rounds designed to be fired from a smoothbore barrel, perfect!, it would actually justify fitting a scope.

I just with they were legal in my area :?

Again it gives more credibility to the original video. How thick is a quarter exactly? It seems to have a similar composition to the 10 euro sent.

Mmm... those darts DO look very nice....

Still, I've stuck a 4cm nail into another polymorph slug and sharpened it up a little bit and it should do the business.

If I can abuse my scanner in the right way I might be able to get a picture of it :o

The alternative is a crap webcam picture :?
